The SURF 2014 program, now wrapping up its eighth year, had a record number of 36 undergraduate students who participated! With the guidance of their faculty mentors, students worked on research projects in a wide range of areas, including the social sciences, the natural sciences, and arts and humanities.
This year, SURF provided students with even more opportunities to learn and grow by including Weekly Seminars where students had the opportunity to network, share their experiences, and talk about their areas of interest. Guest speakers were also invited to give presentations about their research and professional accomplishments. These activities offered students a unique, professional experience that will help them attain their academic and professional goals in the future.
Once their research was complete, students participated in Research Day, where they presented posters and other forms of media to display their work to faculty, staff and guests.
